Tiss true, most of the mass shed is through the process of gravitational waves. This is predicted by the General Theory, that the creation of black holes, release massive amounts of gravitational waves. However there is one thing that is often overlooked. This being, physicist are baffled by gravitational waves. Gravitational waves are extremely weak, and how often to we encounter black holes in person. All we can do is look closer within our solar system. The problem is, our solar system in total releases very little gravitational waves, about equivalent to 100 light bulbs when converted. Comparing this to the suns intensity is nothing at all!! Many people are trying to develop devices to detect gravitational waves, but still they have failed. The only known way is evident, to balls in space, if gravitational waves fall upon them, the balls will move back and forth! This deals more with force then anything else!
